In brief: No.
Both hearing and vision loss have multiple causes.
Although some are inherited, most are not and depend on individual variable health issues. If you have an immediate concern about your vision, you should check in with your eye md asap.

In brief: Not necessarily
There are many reasons why your grandma may have lost her vision and hearing.
The odds are extremely small that it would happen to you.
